Tickets for the 2017 Nottingham Christmas lunch were released on Monday 20th June 2017 and the event was a sell out within hours. The sell out event took place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Nottingham.
CR Civil Engineering were our main sponsor, the menus were sponsored by CR Civil Engineering, Essential Site Skills, Groundforce Shorco, BTE Plant Sales, J C Balls & Sons, GAP (Nottingham), Breedon Group, VUS Ltd, RPH Surfacing, ATB Civil Engineering, Banner Plant and A J Specialist Welding, Groundforce Shorco sponsored the Champagne Draw, J C Balls & Sons sponsored the whisky draw.
We were entertained by “Laurel & Hardy” lookalikes and John Gillan. John finished his act with a rousing rendition of “That’s Amore’ which had everyone singing along and waving their hands in the air. A live auction kept the hands in the air too and guests were very generous in their bidding.
Chairman James Edgar thanked everybody for their continued support and presented a cheque for £50,000 to our Welfare Officer, Julija Greaves for money raised in the Nottingham and Derby region in 2017.
A big thank you goes out to BTE Plant Sales, AB Components, Groundforce Shorco, Thomas Bow, Crowne Plaza, Kal Tire, TC Harrison JCB, Charcon Hard Landscaping, Dash Finance, AJ Welding, Midlands Asset Finance and CR Civil Engineering who all donated auction prizes.
